Sir: R.H.A. Winchester writes (Letters, 8 November) that he does
not recognise any Widmerpools within the HAC of today. This is of course correct. Real Widmer- pools are to be found only in the regular Army, and then only in the Guards and Cavalry.
Territorial Army soldiers of the sort to be found in the HAC have to work for a living during the day in some form of trade, and therefore cannot possibly qualify as Wid- merpools.
